The PSVR exclusive Skyrim VR comes to other VR Platforms, Simon the Sorcerer turns 25 and a text based adventure mean’s a lot to play this week. But before we get to the full list, here are your highlights:

Those without a PSVR but do have a Vive, Rift or one of the new Microsoft Mixed Reality sets will finally be able to pickup The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim VR . Previously a PSVR exclusive, say good bye to the real world as you return to Skyrim once again on Tuesday.

It’s throwback Wednesday this week with Simon the Sorcerer: 25th Anniversary Editions. This non-Lucasarts SCUMM like adventure was a favourite of many who will be able to pickup Simon the Sorcerer and Simon the Sorcerer 2 as they are both re-released Steam this week.

Also in VR and on Wednesday try Crisis on the Planet of the Apes VR. This exclusive to Steam has you playing as a captured ape 5 years after the Simian Flu. This is a little different to the VR FPS you are used to as you can also climb like an Ape along the rooftops as you escape with your fellow apes.

Friday will get you this unique arcade style timewaster as you command a planetary defence system in Keeplanet. In this great looking indie you will keep your planet safe from aliens, space debris and meteors when you pick it up on Steam.

On Saturday get on the Zombie Bus with Dead Ahead: Zombie Warfare. This simple tactical sees you mowing down Zombies and clearing out towns as you fit out your Zombie proof bus to follow behind you as you take out the pixel hoard. It’s out for XBox One owners.

Also on Saturday you can pickup the 3rd and final instalment of Enigmatis with Enigmatis 3: The Shadow of Karkhala. Why do we mention it? Because we are in love with how gorgeous a lot of it’s hand drawn screens are! It’s out for XBox One owners on Saturday.

Honourable Mention: Do you want to return to the era of Zork or Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy text gaming? Then on Monday on Steam check out ‘Are you alone’, a not quite your normal life and dating sim.

If you bought any of these on the release day, tell us how it went! Also, as always did we miss anything? Something you are looking forward to more than anything else? Tell us in the comments
